of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consistent with america's march of freedom. one does not. i want our president to
. praising the president for his efforts to comfort those afflicted by sandy. >> yeah, absolutely. tower, you got another one? >> i do. new york, my neighborhood was surrounded by others with power. it's crazy to look out and see the lights that you don't have. >> it really is. anne thompson's video in her piece showed perfectly, you have half the city in lights. there's uptown. and then you swing down south of about 39th street, new york city in the dark.

happened in the election, why does he think he lost. he told the donors he believe hurricane sandy stunted his momentum in the final week of the campaign. karl rove wrote in this "wall street journal" yesterday president obama was lucky hurricane sandy happened because it interrupted mr. romney's momentum. >>> this began for republicans even before election day explaining how mitt romney's loss in the election would not be a reflection on anything about mitt romney or his policies or campaign or the republican party. they were explaining that before mr. romney even lost. october 31st, campaign sources told cbs news super storm sandy stalled romney's momentum. a few days before the election, if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit. the blame the storm line has continued all through today especially with former mississippi governor haley barbour speaking on the "today" show. >> hurricane sandy saved barack obama's presidency. it broke the momentum romney had coming in the end of october. >> this is a narrative repu
of the worst storms ever to hit the country residents are reeling from sandy's impact. according to an early estimate from ploody's analytic the damage will approach $50 billion including property damage and loss of economic aft ty. more than 3.5 home owners and businesses are facing a day without power. the good news the number keeps coming down but there are still millions without power and then new york, staten island where at least 90 people were killed. the situation is particularly grim and residents are still cold, hungry, without power and supplies. they now feel a profound sense of loss and are getting increasingly angry. >> every person on this block lost everything. >> we want people to know we are hurting down here and we need help. >> i think we are not getting the attention because we are a working class neighborhood and kind of just like fend for yourself kind of thing. >> there it is. you heard that feeling there that those folks have right now. this is a recovery mission. janet napolitano along with fema's deputy administrator will arrive on staten island later today. three
week. i'll give everyone an update. >>> well, the rockefeller center christmas tree stands up to sandy, and almost 3 million cars recalled for steering problems. is yours one of them? >>> plus, guess who's going to get the lion's share of the blame if the country goes off the fiscal cliff. here's a hint for you. it isn't president obama. you're watching "first look" on msnbc. ♪ if it wasn't for you ♪ don't know what i'd do ♪ i'd have nothing to prove ♪ i'd have nothing to lose ♪ i'd be all lost at sea ♪ with no reason to make it through ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing the celebration diamond collection. ♪ if it wasn't for you [ male announcer ] diamonds so expertly cut, we guarantee them for life. zales is the diamond store. let love shine. introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. >>> welcome back. some stories making news this morning. a new pew research center poll finds that republicans in congress will be more to blame if the u.s. goes off the fiscal cliff. 53% of those surveyed point the finger at the gop while 29% say pre
seat. tell you what, this is the coldest morning in areas affected by sandy. you really hope no one is still in their homes without power trying to wait this out. hopefully they're in a shelter or somewhere warm. it is frigid. as far as the forecast today, what we'll be dealing with, is the southeast, the rainstorm. the potential this will be the nor'easter eventually that will sweep up the coast. it will be a little wet early from savannah to tallahassee, jackson, daytona beach. the i-4 corridor could have issues. but that should sweep out by the afternoon and this evening. the other tricky spot for travel in the northern plains, heading from wisconsin to minnesota, you may have a little bit of light wintry precip. that's about it. not too many issues. maybe showers around chicago later today. the forecast for your election day, once again, just the southeast, that's the storm. now let's track it, that will become the nor'easter. good news. further off the coast. very important, that means the winds will be lighter for the coastal areas especially of new jersey. the waves smaller.
in new york remain without power. it's now two weeks after sandy came ashore. yesterday the head of the long island power authority announced his resignation effective at the end of the year. he says it has nothing to do with the harsh criticism his utility company has received following hurricane sandy. of course, not. governor andrew cuomo is putting together a commission to investigate how utility companies in new york responded to the storm. meanwhile, a familiar group is taking a new lead helping victims of hurricane sandy. remember the occupy wall street movement? it turns out they never really went away as nbc's katy tur explains. >> reporter: there are no official badges. all they have for identification is a first name crippled on tom masking tape. these volunteers may not have a legal charity status, but that's not stopping them. >> they desperately need our help. they lost everything. >> tax the rich. >> reporter: remember the occupy wall street movement famous for taking over zuccotti park and taking up the term 1%. now they have occupy sandy. occupy went to work and
to hurricane sandy, that is not actually how it worked out. nobody knows exactly how this particular october surprise hurricane is going to affect the technical act of voting. we have had some early voting suspensions and voter registration deadlines and absentee ballot deadlines change in a lot of states directly affected so there may be a technical direct effect of the storm, but more broadly, and especially in terms of these key swing states, this storm is a major unexpected external variable that, frankly, rivals the election in terms of the country's attention. it turns out this october surprise does have political salience. at least in this sense. the most eagerly awaited endorsement in this presidential race happened just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financia
that was hit the hardest by sandy, it's just going to be a cruel day. we're already watching the winds crank up. even in new york the winds are picking up. we're going to get a winter storm out of this with large waves at coastal areas. the first thing we deal with is the winds. the winds are going to whip the waves up. you can see the storm coming up the coastline. and now the clouds are increasing. even the rain is going to begin to increase in areas along the mid-atlantic. the winds will be the first concern. the wind gusts are already really picking up along the jersey shore all through areas of long island. if we go over to our other weather computer on weather 2, you can see the wind gusts are the highest along the gulf coast and also down along the new england coastline. that's where we're going to see the worst damage from the winds. i think areas of long island could see some winds gusting possibly up to 50 to 70 miles per hour. we're also going to continue areas of possibly new england looking at winter weather advisori advisories. we could get snow out of this. even areas around phil
. and then hurricane sandy hit. on tuesday romney will try to unseat an incumbent president, he's trying to knock a party out of power after just one term. while the president is targeting each part of his coalition with a handful of small arguments, romney is counting on winning the large one. >> he made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep, i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. >> so where does that leave us? the two campaigns believe passionately in two different realities. the president obama campaign believes the countries demographics have changed the etor roert in your favor. the romney campaign believes you have the momentum to swing over. it's possible we are headed for a 50/50 split. it all comes down to nine states or seven or five? whatever the result. polarization is hardening. the house has changed hands three times in the last two decades. two of those times have been in the last six years. red states are getting redder and blue states are getting bluer. the e
to the same region that sandy hit. >>> plus, have you heard? a tweet has suddenly disappeared from donald trump's twitter page. was it deleted? what happened? we don't know but we know what tweet was there and now it's gone. we'll tell you what tweet it is. it is just one of those things we thought you should know. >>> but first, british prime minister david cameron tweeted, warm congratulations to my friend barack obama. look forward to continuing to work together. and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu told reporters, quote, i will continue to work with president obama to preserve the strategic interests of israel's citizens.

is it 78-8 people think he's done a good job on hurricane sandy. it's tough with that type of week it's just -- it gets enough. now i think the only hope for the romney folks is let's say this ad blitz stimulates their base and they come out in pennsylvania in numbers that they were not likely to come out in before. and the obama base still remains over confident or lethargic, et cetera. i don't think that's going to happen. i think ofa still has an excellent ground operation. i've been going around to ofa staging places the last couple of days. and the ofa people are fired up. there hasn't been that much activity visible as of yet but in the last four days they can do a lot. they got a very, very good organization. so i think the odds are very difficult for romney here. >> governor, you just mentioned hurricane sandy. i want you to quickly weigh in on president obama and chris christie bromance. robert mourdock said christie needs to redeclare for romney or take the blame for the next four years. do they need to reto their vow? >> if i were the romney campaign and believe me i'm not
women. and they're still counting votes in florida. not again. nine days after sandy's, the east coast is getting another had hit, a powerful nor'easter, threatening to cause new flooding and power outages in the same areas battered by the hurricane. good day. i'm andrea mitchell, the day after, live in new york. what many expected to be a close contest ended as a resounding electoral college win for president obama. after a hard-fought race spanning two years, so what should we now expect from a second term? joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and karen, national political correspondent fors the "washington post," as well as "time's" senior correspondent michael crowley. welcome all. thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, what are the lessons you've learned and looking at in the four years to come? >> well, yeah. i mean let's talk first about lessons learned, andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the e
to do it inappropriately. they're going to blame sandy, chris christie, paul ryan. they're going to blame voters for being dumb and voting against their interests. i think and i've said this before, president obama because mitt romney was the wrong candidate at the wrong time. i think he would have won in 2008. he needed a time machine. a bad year to be the guy running against universal health care when you crafted a similar piece of legislation in massachusetts. running on a message of business and success and capitalism when that's demonized in the class war. it was just the wrong fit for this year. >> steve? >> yeah. you know, guys, i mean, this was obviously a momentous win for obama and the democrats and a lot to dissect in terms of demographics and where politics in this country go from here and something to be said for the idea that obama in the campaign was in slightly stronger shape than a lot of people appreciated. political scientists who sort of step away from the day-to-day campaigning and look at the structural factors said obama's approval rating is at or near 50%
were outpacing our 2008 daily totals, however, before hurricane sandy hit. so some of the residual impact of hurricane sandy had an impact on us. but to have 230 hours of early voting and 207 of those 230 were during business hours, we had four less weekends to vote this year. than we did in 2008. and working class people, how are you able to make it to the board of elections to vote between 8:00 and 5:00? we did not have our extended day work hours. but despite all of that, ohio delivered for the president just as i knew we would. >> all right. well, i know the election's over. you've been a great guest on this hour. let's make this more of an occurring process. great to have you on. >> thank you, sir. >>> there is no way that claire mccaskill can survive. you know what happened? you proved them wrong. >> i want you to know i will stand up for you and i ask you to work with me to move our state forward. >> -- the negative ads. it will once again strengthen. >> and despite the odds, you elected the first woman senator to the state of massachusetts. >> a big night winning moments of
on the upper east side of manhattan. he's not bothered about hurricane sandy. >> exactly. mayor bloomberg has done some good things here but also showed an incredible lack of understanding in trying to continue the marathon. you have some people here who have power, media power, financial power, political power, and they're looking at this and we're seeing how they view these developments. that's unfortunate what they think. >> i want to add something to that, because what i like about this i guess in the middle of the nonsense of political partisan ship is that it shows we still have it in us as americans when you see a democrat and a republican coming together from different sides of the aisle to solve an issue. we've had many issues. rrdless of who is president or not, there are issues in the economy, in the debt, and immigration, with the war, why couldn't we celebrate and see this as a sign of hope instead of trying to over dramatize it. it's really unfortunate, whether it is through twitter of powerful people or even us in the media, to not look at this and see the positive in it and tr
left by hurricane sandy. a nor'easter blew through the east coast yesterday, dumping snow and rain on a region that's barely begun to dig out from sandy. we've got new pictures from staten island where several inches of wet snow are threatening to topple already weakened trees. power was knocked out to some 60,000 homes in newark and new jersey overnight. many of which had just had their service restored after many days in the dark. there's also renewed headaches for millions of commuters as passenger trains grind to a halt, and at least 1,300 flights are kept at the gates at the airports. let's go to meteorologist bill karins for a look at what is unfolding here. bill. >> good morning. before i get to the details, talking about joe's point there, nine days apart between these two events. i can almost guarantee you go back through history of hurricane landfalls, and i don't think any area has ever seen a snowstorm nine days after they dealt with a storm surge like we had with sandy. i mean, it's just ridiculous that it even happened. we showed you how rare of the times we are in. t
and at the table. we'll talk about the complexities of how sandy helped to expose these vulnerabilities when we come back. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

's largest, has been facing tough criticism for its response to superstorm sandy which knocked out electricity to nearly 1 million customers. the resignation announcement comes one day after governor andrew cuomo ordered a commission to investigate how utility companies handle the disaster. how about poorly. >> flipping pages on the calendar, you know what? december 31st was my out date. "usa today" a crucial test on wall street for the social networking giant facebook. more than 750 million shares of the facebook ipo become unlocked. they are available for sale, sparking fears of a massive selloff. facebook, by the way, has lost about half its value since it went public in may. apparently no zuckerberg public sightings today. >> that's because general petraeus used e-mail instead of facebook. >> exactly. >> "new york times," france is now considering a plan to arm opposition forces in syria after becoming the first western power to fully recognize the rebel coalition. it's seen as an effort to help align anti-government fighters whose lack of unity is blamed in part for helping pr
been, of course, there was a stall because of sandy. and if you believe all the polls and i do, a slight moving away from mitt romney over the past couple of days. >> i think sandy convoluted everything and leaves us with a real nail biter. >> yeah, convoluted everything. look at new jersey, just right across the river. you have chris christie hugging and loving on barack obama and then bruce springsteen hugging and love on chris christie. this is willie geist, as it was foretold in ghostbusters so many moons ago, cats and dogs living together. >> 6:06, the first "ghostbusters" reference. >> i'm going to try to average two an hour. >> chris christie's been waiting for that hug from the boss for a long time, by the way. >> he did cry. >> chris christie's a governor and his state is under siege from the weather system. it's not like the president was hugging and loving on john boehner and they were riding in air force one together. that would have been a story, this is just people doing their job. >> you think about chris christie, i mean -- >> what? >> you should have called cha
and florida, but put tempers to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama matchup offers good news for the incumbent. >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in democracy plaza in new york city. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin political analyst for "time" and msnbc. so, first to you, chris, let's talk about the state of the race. >> well, we're almost there, andrea. i think the state of the race is that
that sandies, the storm, that occurred the week before the election made a difference. one, he said it allowed the president to look presidential. you know, he was sort of doing presidential duties and handling the storm. the second thing was that it took up a lot of the awaves. newhouse said the public was rightly focused on the storm but it didn't allow the romney campaign to prosecute their message. the third thing he said was president obama was a able to make use of his relationship with governor chris christie and behave in an elevated bipartisan way that governor romney had been trying to do. >> was there any whiff of bitterness with regard to the reference it chris christie? >> no. on the call he mentioned it was a statement of fact. >> and what about responses from any of the big donors on the call? were there any complaints? were there any reactions from them at the notion that mitt romney used all their money in what was a losing effort? >> the donors on this call were not able to ask questions. i've heard gripes from donors privately but on this call someone on it described it to m
. republicans are kind of angling to blame sandy and chris christie for mitt romney's loss. he has to reaffirm the republican base that he's with them. >> ari, when you look at the president's approval numbers on the storm, i believe it's 67% of the public according to our nbc news numbers, 67% approve, 16% disapprove. 17% not sure. it's not something that the republicans want, certainly sandy has done a good job of not only making the case are for government but showing that the president is capable of working across the aisle? >> yeah. i don't think that people really in ohio, for example, are going to change their mind over the last minute over this leadership, good as it is. but i do think to your point that what we see here is a freezing of the political facts that existed a week ago where mitt romney was gaining a little but no way in the lead. the new poll number out tonight still show this slight but real edge for the president. and not a big edge. but, again, mitt romney lost a week of politicking here and that is the biggest problem. if the republicans now as a prebuttal or on tuesda
't moving in pennsylvania. and they felt at that point they were flattened by sandy. i don't think this race was close enough to be impacted by a hurricane. >> no. >> but that's certainly what they believe. >> chris christie, yes, springsteen's his buddy, and springsteen may have brought him over. i think that people -- i was in ohio a couple weeks ago. you know, there's great wealth in ohio. there are companies that have given out billions of dollars to people in ohio because there's oil and gas everywhere. and the whole northeast ohio was flooded withal abouts of dollars of oil money. those people are not unhappy. >> andrea, we saw it early on, and we were talking about how the right track/wrong track in ohio shifted six months ago. mitt romney, i think, one of the pivotal moments when mitt romney told john kasich, stop bragging about your economy in ohio. ohio was a leading indicator. >> it was a leading indicator. you know, the other thing about that mitigates against agreement is the people who were elected in the house, and they picked up seats. the democrats did miserably. i think you
president obama can expect tomorrow when he visits devastated areas in new york city from hurricane sandy. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. what makes the sleep number store different? you walk into a conventional mattress store, it's really not about you. we have so much technology in our store to really show the customers what's going on with their bodies. you can see a little more pressure in the shoulders and in the hips. ... now you can feel what happens as we raise your sleep number setting and allow the bed to contour to your individual shape. oh, wow. that feels really good. at sleep number we've created a collection of innovations dedicated to individualizing your comfort. the sleep number collection, designed around the innovative sleep number bed - a bed with dualair technology that allows you to adjust to the exact comfort your body needs. each of your bodies. so whatever you feel like, sleep number's going to provide it for you. during the final days of our semi-annual sleep sale, save $500 on our classic series special edition bed set . selected beds but h
wrapped together in a seamless manner. >> yeah. you don't want to be too crass but hurricane sandy has been a political opportunity for the president and to act presidential, to be presidential, and then the embrace by chris christie who gave the keynote speech against him at the republican convention, obviously, sort of a turning point in maybe the last turning point in this election and if i could, also just throw out one other economic stat that we should be paying attention to, we focus on this jobs report but also important is consumer confidence and that has been increasing dramatically, look at august, september and now october, consumer confidence is going straight up. and that's sort of a measure of how people feel about the economy, how things are doing. they're willing to spend again. that probably benefits the president. there's sort of an economic era of good feeling out there right now that's beginning to creep into the electorate. that's probably good for president obama as well. so some good news for the president going into this. but romney just gave a speech and he sa
the devastated areas up in new york city from hurricane sandy. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. at some point in the many lives of a dollar it will be a dollar saved by somebody who switched to esurance. like, dollar karma. being online, esurance saves dollars that come back as more dollars for you. esurance. now backed by allstate. click or call. >>> let me finish tonight with this. tomorrow president obama goes to the storm-devastated parts of new york. my prediction is that he will be devastated himself by a tragedy that seems to grow worse, especially as the temperature drops towards december. again tonight, i'm going to ask you to take out a pen or a pencil and be ready. you might be able to help yourself with what the president sees tomorrow. i hope the president sees too the amazing network of people attempting to help the victims out there on staten island and brooklyn and the nastily hit parts of queens, like rockaway and breezy point. let's take rockaway, an area where nearly every family has a firefighter in the family, a police officer, sanitation worker, or some ot
wins tomorrow it's only because of hurricane sandy. i started to hear republicans say we had the momentum last week and it stalled and the race froze in place. you've looked at numbers closely. is there anything to that argument? >> i think that you can say there's a tick up in obama's standing in the polls since the hurricane. his number rs were on the rise since october. look at the polls in ohio conducted immediately before the hurricane. a wave of them were ahead by 2 to 5 points like they show now, and maybe he's better in the blue states as a result. twhae that wasn't going to decide the election. >> nate, i want to talk about what the electorate is like lick to look like tomorrow night. back in 2008, 74% of the lakt rate was white people. the obama campaign is counting on it at 74% or lower. the romney campaign banks on it at 74% or higher. what do you see? are white folks trends downwards in terms of the overall% of the electorate they make up? what dupree district court for foam night? >> the first thing that's important is whatever the answer is, it doesn't influenc
. and hurricane sandy, a lot of people who i talked to as they were leaving this ballroom were suggesting that was the game changer for the president. having just been in ohio for five days and talking to a lot of folks there, obviously the auto bailout not only in ohio but in wisconsin and michigan keys here. but in the end, it was a night for mitt romney where he won only one of those hotly contented battleground states. >> chris, it was interesting to me the governor sent a message to his supporters that says accept this defeat. you know, this happened. and there has been a concern -- frankly i was concerned that whichever side lost might not feel as if they lost. they would be so stunned they wouldn't think it was fair and square. it does look like at least in that room and the supporters in boston that they know they lost fair and square. >> well, they do. and i think in the minutes after, we heard the statements from mitch mcconnell and this confusion for an hour and a half. the question was is this going to get nasty before it was truly over? i have to say one of the first things t
